First off, I want to thank everyone for all the thoughtful comments about my last post. I am very happy that my sister is back in my life and I was talking to Jared about the whole thing. And he said that right now, I should concentrate on the wedding and everything that is about to happen in the next couple months. In some ways it's a test, to see if she really hangs around for awhile. I know it's mean in some ways but it is one way to ensure my heart doesn't get broken. But in way I think she is here for good, and will be at my wedding, which I am totally excited about!!

My weekend was good. Saturday, went with my Dad to the auto parts store to pick a new bulb for the headlight, my daddy gets a discount 'cause he's an ex Air Canada employee. Then I went to the Scrap store to buy my good friend sam her b-day present. She's just gotten into scrappin so I bought her some of my fave goodies; ribbon, patterned paper from Basic Grey, KI Memories, some rub ons and other things. She's going to love it!! And on the way to the scrap store as I was driving I saw a dinosaur, a triceratops to be exact. One of the museums is having an exhibit about dinosaurs and I guess they were moving it. I must say it was pretty cool!! I mean how often do you see a dinosaur being pulled by a truck on the street? Wish I had my camera. Later Saturday night I went with Jared to his aunts house for dinner for his Grandpa's birthday!! And we got our plane tickets for our honeymoon!! YAY!! I'm so excited. His Grandpa got the tickets through all his Visa points!! Jared and i are going to Hawaii. To Honolulu!! I am so looking forward to it!! Lounging by the beach, relaxing and hopefully getting to meet Dog the Bounty Hunter!! That would be so cool!!

Sunday, I stayed home and totally lounged. Jared was out with friends watching the Superbowl. Tried to do some Scrappin' but just wasn't feeling it!! So, I watched Mean Girls, love that movie, sorry to say!! Then...

Look what my sister Olga came home with on Sunday afternoon!! She looks so good in it!!


Isn't this car absolutely gorgeous?! My sisters dream car!! It's a 2001 Mazda Miata, has a soft top, standard, almost no mileage, barely driven, leather seats!! Gorgeous!!


Too bad Olga didn't buy it, we were all sad to see it leave. It was too expensive for her, so the search continues. If not my other sister Vanessa has a red Miata, a 1990 and Olga might buy it from her. We'll see.

Anyways this week is dedicated to wedding stuff, trying to find a caterer, and I'm meeting another florist tomorrow and we're going to register this weekend too!! I can't wait. I also have parent-teacher conferences, which are not fun. Hopefully in between I can do some scrappin too!! Have some swaps that I'm doing and other things!! Have an awesome week everyone!!

HOLY cow! That is a gorgeous car.. you need to register for one of those!!!

maria said...

Yeah, that is a cool car. I love Mazdas. I used to have a two seater one when I was single. It was the Mazda RX7, I used to love that little thing. It was soooo cute! But now with a kid, we need the SUV for practicality. Have fun with all the wedding plans and how awesome that you'll be going to Honolulu! Can't wait to see your pictures!

Jamie said...

Hawaii for the honeymoon!?! that is so great!!! also glad to read that post about your sister and reuniting with her, that is awesome.

Alexandra Wieckowski said...

Glad you had a nice weekend :) Do you know what kind of flowers you want????

Jared gave some pretty sound advice....concentrate on the wedding planning and not your sister. If she's back for good, then there will be plenty of time to get reaquainted again.

And nooooo it's not irrational to have doubts about your sister pulling another disappearing act again. Just don't obsess over it. You have soo many other great things to be grateful for...
